1997 Chrysler Sebring Convertible JXI 2.5 from North America
Overall, I have been very satisfied, provided you baby, nurse and maintain the car
Currently problems in Transmission "Limp Mode" doesn't seem serious, however advised to replace Input/Output Vehicle Speed Sensors (VSS) and perhaps shift solenoid.
Will also replace TCM, otherwise no other major problems. CMTC defective, LED died, low priority to fix or replace, no starting problems, drilled holes in rocker panels years ago, resolved flooding problem.
Check strap broken; clicks when door opens/closes, personally replacing the check strap, easy to repair.
Had stalling problems, related to routine maintenance, not a current problem anymore.
Outer edge seams on top coming loose, needs to be re-sewn, will sew myself.
Had car since new (original owner), has been good to me, runs well, however this is my first and last convertible. It's a delight to drive, the Infinity radio system is superb, I baby the car and try to address all problems when I have enough funds. Purchased a portable charger/compressor unit, a real life savior, and an official service manual, highly recommended.
